This course is for early-stage social enterprises or non-profits that are just starting out and are in the early-stages of forming a board for their companies.
Having a functioning board early on can be a key driver of an enterprise's success over the longer term. As investors, both Acumen and our course partner, Accion Venture Labs, often sit on the boards of such companies. But more importantly, we support our entrepreneurs through the process of creating the "right" board.
We believe this course will be especially useful for social entrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes – both for-profit and non-profit - at all stages, but is by no means limited to the audience. Whether you are an employee of a social enterprise, an impact investor or if you just want to understand how to think about a social enterprise’s board strategy, this course is for you.
So please join us, learn the best practices and a think how you could apply that thinking to your own journey!
